Air crosswalk by Art Lebedev Studio.
Air crosswalk is an ingenious solution for increased pedestrian safety. Not only does it provide greater illumination on the street walker, it greater signifies “crossing” to the driver. But don’t get too comfortable New Yorkers, because unfortunately it can’t make the drivers actually care about avoiding you.
The first of these crosswalks are to be installed in Tumen, Russia in 2009.

Designer Igor Pinigin’s low water comsumption wash sink. Ingenious idea, but I reserve judgement untill I try it.
If I was not a renter I would tear through those short little cabinets above my sink and replace them with this:
Actually, I might tear through the entire thing and draw a little inspiration from Kevin Mark Low and his small projects collection. Nice details can turn seemingly mundane objects into pleasant surprises. No object, not even a dish rack should be too ordinary to make beautiful. This dish rack is easily lovable for eliminating the need for a drip tray and utilizing the sink instead. It nice detailing is what made it catch my eye. A few more shots of the metal and wood connections:
Who would have thought that salt evaporation ponds could be so amazing? I’ve just drawn a little inspiration for my next painting!
WOW!! Be sure and check out the rest.
Anycoloryoulike developed a citywide art intervention that has been replacing normal trash bags with designer trash bags from local artists. The TRASH appears on strings of blocks throughout the city and you too can get involved. An extra plus in the project is that each bag is biodegradable and treated with repellant for Rodents of Unusual Size and things like that.
I just read a review of this sustainable ipod sound dock, the Vers2X. It comes in cherry, bamboo, or walnut straight from plantation forests. It runs on 56 watts which is 50% less that its counterparts which are also full of lead, mercury, hexavalent chromium, among other hazardous materials.
I must say from a design stand point it is much nicer than the others as well. It has a slight retro feel as well as being very modern.
Who needs four legs? Not Nick Ross or his twist chair. For those with a little piece of dirt to call their own. You could get several and arrange them at different heights, it would be like a garden of chairs.
